Oh, I didn;'t include my patches in what broke, I was trying to get the new
kernel buoilt and booted first, so whjat broke is 100% just what walked out of
the archive (I cvsup the cvs archive, not just a checked out image).  Soon as
this doesn't break on build, I will try my fix to Kai's krepdump USB HID dumping

After that, I finish my in process changes to the Xorg's xf86-input-evdev module
so give me one I call xf86-input-uclogic, then I begin (I haven't even started
this part) the uta.c, which is a USB driver for my UC Logic WP8060 Graphic
Tablet.  I've done one hell of a lot of research on the HID spec (enough to
strongly suspect that the folks who wrote it were under the influence of
recreational pharmaceuticals).
